Public safety budget down

Previous budget had capital projects

Pop of color

By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

The Boone County Public Safety Communications executive board approved the center’s 2012 budget on June 23. The proposed revenues and expenditures total a little more than $3.5 million, down from last year’s $5.77 million. According to PSCC director Jim Staverman, the higher budget last year was due to capital projects. Another change from last year’s budget is the contribution from the city of Florence. Florence council members complained previously that Florence residents were double paying for PSCC service, while the rest of the county only pays once. In the past, Florence would pay 25 percent of the PSCC’s intergovernmental revenues and the county covered the other 75 percent. A study released in December found that the inequities were there. Florence leaders cut the city’s contribution by nearly half for the 2010-2011 fiscal year and did not contribute to PSCC funding for the current fiscal year. Some money from the capital fund was used as a temporary funding measure to “bridge that gap in this coming year,” Staverman said in a phone conversation. The county contribution made up the difference, he said. Last year, the county contribution was budgeted at $1.8 million. Its budgeted contribution is set at $2.03 million for fiscal year 20112012. “It’s a short-term fix because the capital money won’t always be there,” Staverman said. That’s why there has been a “big push” in terms of finding another funding mechanism, he said. Boone County administrator Jeff Earlywine discussed the budget at the meeting and said the PSCC operating fund increased by approximately $175,000. The primary culprit of the increase was retirement and health insurance costs, he said.

Katelyn Stenger of Burlington will spend six weeks in Germany this summer thanks to an exchange scholarship offered by Toyota. Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing North America in association with Youth for Understanding USA awarded the full scholarship to Stenger to participate in the program. Selection for the program is based on candidates’ leadership skills, civic and extracurricular activities, academic achievement and an interest in international affairs. Stenger, 17, learned she won the scholarship late last month and said she had an option of

There was an attempt to change the property’s zoning several years ago, but after facing opposition from neighbors at that time, the zone change was not approved. “Seven years later, we have great upstanding customers,” he said. “We get tons and tons of people wanting to buy a glass of wine or a beer.” Jane’s Saddlebag is a heritage tourism destination with an educational farm located on Big Bone Creek. It also serves food and has a petting zoo and collectible shop. While some neighbors may have opposed the change seven years ago, Blackmore said he recently went around to neighbors with a petition in support of the measure. He received nearly 50 signatures, including some who signed a petition opposing the measure years earlier. “Every neighbor I spoke with was excited,” he said. Allowing sales will help the business grow, Black-

more said. “We’ll get more customers this way. It will bring in more revenue for us,” he said. “Many customers come and just want a beer.” According to Blackmore, alcohol is sold at a location less than 10 minutes away. “We don’t want hard liquor, we just really want to be zoned for beer and wine,” he said. It was never the family’s intention to be a bar, he said. Kevin Wall, director of zoning services for the Boone County Planning Commission, said in an email the property is currently within an agricultural (A-1) zone, along with most of the surrounding area. The adjoining boat dock immediately south of the property is within a recreation (R) zone which potentially allows the sale of alcoholic beverages, he said. “The specific proposal could have bearing on which zone would be appropriate for their goals,” Wall said.

Walton budgets for hydrant flow issue By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

WALTON - A May fire led to quick changes in the Walton budget. Walton City Council approved the second and final reading of the city’s 2011-2012 fiscal year budget. The second reading of the budget was delayed, in part, because city leaders wanted to look into ways to increase water flow on Edwards Avenue. The issue arose after firefighters had to lay 2,000 feet of hose across U.S. 25 to fight a fire May 31 fire on

There aren’t concrete plans for how the issue will be solved, but Carlisle is meeting with the developer of a subdivision near Edwards Avenue to try and work out a solution. The budget reading passed with a 5-0 vote. Council member Craig Brandenburg was absent. In addition to the budget, council approved the second reading of a new pay plan, which gives the city’s six full-time and one part-time employees a 2.5 percent increase.

Community gardens appeal to immigrants

Newcomers from Africa carry on their love of gardening By Stephanie Salmons ssalmons@nky.com

Community gardens in Boone County – there’s one in Union near the city’s pool and one near EnglandIdlewild Park in Burlington – have been such a hit, there’s a waiting list for available plots, said Boone County Parks program assistant Jo Haltermon. According to Haltermon, there are 48 garden plots in Burlington and 58 in Union. Of those, around 15 are used “When you by indiwant to viduals originally think about f r o m things, come Africa. to the Charles To g arepi garden and and his you’re in a w i f e , Schola, different are origiworld.� nally from John Ngenzi Z i m b a b Gardener we. They have lived in Florence since 2007 but moved to America in 1999. They first lived in Cincinnati, where his brother lives, but moved to Florence because they wanted to raise their child in a quieter neighborhood. According to Charles, they learned about the community garden plots from a friend. They grow things like corn, tomatoes and collard greens. There’s not enough room to grow a garden where they live, Schola Togarepi said. “You don’t want to plant corn in your back yard.� They grew up gardening, Charles Togarepi said. “People from Africa farm the land. To them, it’s something they’re used to,� he said. Most people in Africa live in rural areas and farm to make a living, Charles Togarepi said. They freeze the food they grow in the community garden, Schola Togarepi said. Gardening is not only therapeutic, but is also exercise, she said. “One plot is not enough for people who love gardening.� They love the community garden, Schola Togarepi said. “We almost want to come back every day,� she said.

Esther and John Ngenzi, Florence, are originally from Kenya. They farm in one of Boone County’s community gardens.

Former Boone County Judge-executive Bruce Ferguson stands with his dog, Amy, at one of Boone County’s community gardens. The community garden located in Union is on farm land that once belonged to Ferguson. County, several come from cities outside the county including Cincinnati, Independence and even one person from Lexington, Haltermon said. Former Boone County Judge-executive Bruce Ferguson sold 30 acres of his Union farm, and donated six, to Boone County several years ago. A portion of his old farm land is used for the Union garden plots. “I love it,� Ferguson said. Last year, he started bringing manure to the gardeners to use on their crops. John Ngenzi and his wife, Esther, also of Florence, are originally from Kenya. They have lived in Boone County since 1995 but have been in America for about 30 years, originally arriving in Nashville. There are several reasons why they farm, such as recreation and exercise, but it’s also therapeutic, he said. “When you want to think about things, come to the garden and you’re in a different world,� he said. Like the Togarepis, Ngenzi said he grew up farming in rural areas. Esther Ngenzi said people grow their own crops for enjoyment and can save money by doing so. Planting their own gardens, they have the opportunity to grow items they don’t usually see in the store, she said. The garden, John Ngenzi said, is like a meeting place,

where those farming can “walk in and socialize.� It also serves as a learning opportunity for their children so they “know about the crops we kept.� “We say hello to each other,� Esther said. “We’re surrounded by friendly people who want to have a crop and grow something.�

NKU administrator to lead Rotary By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

FLORENCE - A university leader is now a civic club leader. The Florence Rotary Club installed J. Patrick Moynahan as the club’s new president at its June 27 meeting. Moynahan, of Erlanger, is the vice provost for Northern Kentucky University. Before becoming president, Moynahan served on the club’s Board of Directors. During the meeting, Moynhan chose to speak

The club’s next meeting, July 11, is when Patrick Moynahan will lay out his plans for the next year. little of his plans for his year-long term, and instead wanted to highlight the club’s past year under the leadership of Greg Palmer. Moynahan touched on Palmer’s efforts to rally the club together for the World Equestrian Games where the club volunteered 98 eight-hour shifts to help out with the event that brought

$200 million to Kentucky. “I’ve really enjoyed being involved with Rotary this year,” Palmer said. This year was also the founding of the Florence Rotary Foundation, which allows the club to distribute funds locally to help those in need. To kick off the fund, the club hosted two benefit concerts and raised more than $9,000. In his last moments as club president, Palmer spoke of his excitement of the future under Moynahan’s leadership.

“I’m really looking forward to what’s coming,” Palmer said. More than a dozen former club presidents were on hand for the club’s traditional “passing of the gavel” where the president’s gavel is passed down the line by the presidents until the current president gives it to his successor. While Moynahan chose to spend his first meeting as president honoring Palmer, the club’s next meeting, July 11, is when Moynahan will lay out his plans for the next year.

FLORENCE - Authentic southeast Asian food will have a new home on the north end of Mall Road. Lek Niamnet is opening the Thai Pepper Restaurant at 7551 Mall Road in late July. It will feature Thai food and a sushi bar. This is the first restaurant Niamnet has owned, but she and her staff aren’t strangers to the business.

“We’ve been working with restaurants for 15 years,” said manager Noi Gundlacs. The family-run restaurant will have a special touch of authenticity because the entire family is from Thailand, she said. In keeping with the authentic vibe, there will be a Thai-style seating section that features triangle pillows for floor seating.

For those unfamiliar with Thai food, Gundlacs points out the large use of herbs and vegetables. “It’s more healthy,” she said. Thai food is often compared to Chinese food, which isn’t entirely accurate, Gundlacs said. “It’s a little bit more spicy than Chinese food,” she said.

Cardinal Hill taken over by Community Foundation By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

FLORENCE - Northern Kentucky's first audiology service has a new owner. Starting July 1, Cardinal Hill of Northern Kentucky will be taken over by the Community Foundation of Northern Kentucky. At that point, the Community Foundation will handle administrative and operational oversight. Cardinal Hill's Florence facility, at 31 Spiral Drive, was home to adult day care, respite care, speech therapy, audiology and other services. The facility will now operate under the names Speech and Hearing of

Northern Kentucky and Adult Day Care of Northern Kentucky. The new names are the only changes those who use the facility should expect, said Charlene Erler, board chair for the Community Foundation. "Nothing is changing service-wise," Erler said. The same staff will be working at the facility, she said. A big reason there will be no change is because Cardinal Hill's mission matched the Community Foundation's. The two organizations spent eight months working out the deal, so the Community Foundation had a lot of time to see how well the two matched up, Erler said.

A

"We've done our due diligence over eight months," she said. Founded in Covington in 1923 as part of Kentucky Easter Seals, Cardinal Hill of Northern Kentucky had a long history of pioneering services to meet pressing community needs. It was the first facility in Northern Kentucky to offer audiology services to children and adults and was the first adult day care center to offer daily care and nursing services to younger adults, as well as those over 60. The Florence center, which opened in February 2001, is designed to meet the goals of comprehensive rehabilitation. It focuses on new approaches in therapy utilizing specially designed spaces and equipment.

The Boone County Property Valuation Administrator’s office will be inspecting Walton-Verona Road, Alford Rolling Acres, Verona Commons, Stephenson Manor, McGees Boone Pointe, Catlett Subdivision, Richards Subdivision and new construction throughout Boone County during the week of July 11. Do not be alarmed if you see staff members in these areas. They will be in a marked vehicle and have identification available upon request. If you have any questions, contact PVA Cindy Arlinghaus a t cindy.arlinghaus@boonecoun tyky.org.

parenting practices around the world. As part of the series, NPR launched “The Baby Project” on June 27 at www.npr.org. It’s a blog following eight pregnancies from different regions and walks of life in the United States, written by women expecting to give birth this summer. “I don’t think my story is particularly fascinating, but I live it,” Pike said. “If it’s interesting to someone else, then great.” She and her husband tried fertility treatments for about 10 months before deciding to adopt. After adopting sons Andy, 8, and Benny, 4, both as newborns, Pike and her husband wanted to have one more baby. They ultimately opted to try in vitro fertilization. Pike soon discovered she was pregnant with not just one, but two babies - girls to be named Natalie and Elizabeth. She’s currently 31 weeks pregnant and due in August. “I never fully gave up wanting to experience pregnancy,” Pike said. This time around, things were more relaxed. “The desperation you are swimming through is unbelievable. (It’s) indescribable,” she said. “We were

already parents, so that was removed.” The boys have been involved waiting for their sisters to arrive. Blood, she said, is just genetics. “Blood is who you get donor bone marrow from. That’s not what makes a family.” Her pregnancy so far has been “awesome.” “It’s priceless,” Pike said. “It’s everything I wanted but way better than I imagined it could be.” At the beginning of her in vitro attempt, Pike said she started a personal blog. A friend sent her the link to apply to be a blogger for NPR. When she was actually selected, “I thought it was really cool,” she said. Sharing her story might give people something to relate to. “I wish I had this stuff when I was first going through infertility (issues),” she said. Pike, who grew up in Los Angeles, moved to Boone County in 2004 and has been living in Union since around 2008. Her husband is from the area. She will continue to blog through the last few weeks of her pregnancy and the first few weeks after the twins’ arrival.

As time passed, toys, books and games get outdated and worn. The BCBA plans to keep up with the the supplies in the room and make sure it’s always prepared for kids, Deatherage said. “We’ve got a budget allotted for it, so we can keep the toys up to date,” he said. The partnership came at a great time, said Ben Brooks, manager of the emergency department. “We were kind of struggling to keep it stocked,” Brooks said. The partnership has been a few months in the making, but it should be completely going in May, Deatherage said. “It’s just a community project for the BCBA to reach out,” he said. Deatherage is particularly excited about the partnership because of its longterm nature. “It’s not just a one-time deal,” he said. “It should be a ‘forever’ project.”

BCHS assistant principal retires

By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

FLORENCE - One of Boone County High School’s leaders is stepping down. Assistant Principal Donnie McFarland retired from Boone County High School after 11 years at the school. “I really enjoyed the great, great job and the great, great school system,” McFarland said. Since coming to Boone County

High School, two of his children went through the school and graduated. “I feel really good about the education they got at Boone County High School,” he said. During his last year at Boone County High School, one of McFarland’s sons spent his first year as a teacher there, a moment he was particularly proud of. “It was just a really great experience,” McFarland said. During his time at the school,

McFarland earned the respect of his teachers, said Principal Mark Raleigh. “They felt like he was very supportive of them,” Raleigh said. McFarland was a key player in Boone County High School’s partnership with Citi, he said. “We were recognized and rewarded several times for our relationship,” Raleigh said. Before coming to Boone County High School, McFarland taught health and coached basketball at

Dixie Heights and Simon Kenton and spent a few years as an assistant basketball coach at Western Kentucky University. Along with serving as assistant principal, McFarland has been an part-time assistant men’s basketball coach for Northern Kentucky University. In his retirement, McFarland looks to continue on with coaching at NKU. “I don’t see myself just sitting back and doing retirement by

Cooper video in running for Ford commercial By Justin B. Duke jbduke@nky.com

A team of eight students from Cooper High School are in the running for $10,000 for the school thanks to a video they made. The video is a commercial for the 2012 Ford Focus and is part of Ford’s “Focus on Schools” campaign. “We were invited by Airport Ford,” said teacher Kristen Franks. Students did their planning because most of the filming had to be done in one day, Franks said. “They let us actually borrow the car for a day,” she said. Having the car got the students really excited, but they put a lot of what they’ve learned into use, Franks said. “They got to practice all their

production skills,” she said. The final product became “It’s a Ford Focus: You Can Go Anywhere on a Quarter Tank of Gas.” It was selected by Ford into the final competition of videos from schools across the country. By making it into the final running, Cooper was given $500 by Airport Ford. “We’re proud of our kids,” Franks said. Now the team is competing for one of 10 top prizes ranging from $1,000 to $10,000, and they need help. The contest comes down to the video that gets the most votes from the public. To see the video and to vote for the team visit http://tinyurl.com/coopervideo. Voting is open through July 15.

Erlanger woman named outstanding administrator in Kentucky Amber Decker of Erlanger has been named the New Horizons outstanding administrator in the statewide Kentucky Community and Technical College System. Decker is director of grants and contracts at Gateway Community and Technical College in Northern Kentucky. Decker received the award in May during the KCTCS annual New Horizons faculty-staff confer-

ence. “Simply being nominated by your peers for New Horizons recognition is the highest honor an employee can receive within the system,” said Gateway President/CEO Ed Hughes. “To be selected for the statewide award truly signifies that you are the best of the best.” Decker was nominated by her

Students compete at IT Careers Camp, design new businesses Ohio, and Redwood of Fort Mitchell. Starting July 18, the INTERalliance will conduct five sessions of its IT Careers Camp at three regional universities for the sixth year. One hundred graduated sophomores from Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky high schools have been selected to participate in a weeklong deep dive into technology-based problemsolving at local businesses, hosted by the UC College of Business,

New ‘Race to the Top’ grants eyed State education officials have their eye on a new federal “Race to the Top” education grant proposal that focuses on making improvements in early learning, a spokeswoman said July 1. “We are very interested in early learning grants,” said Lisa Gross, spokeswoman for the Kentucky Department of Education, “and staff here are reviewing proposed criteria.” The U.S. Department of Education on July 1 released proposed requirements for the new grants, called “Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge.” Public input on the proposal will be allowed through July 11. Kentucky lost the first “Race to the Top” competition in 2010 but was among the 19 finalists vying for a portion of $3.4 billion. That money went instead to Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island and Washington, D.C. “Race to the Top” rewards states for embarking on ambitious reforms to improve struggling schools, close the achievement gap and boost graduation rates. Kentucky had been hoping to win $175 million to pay for testing and curriculum improvements. The new grant competition is to focus on upgrading early childhood programs and closing the kindergarten readiness gap among high-need children, according to a news release from the federal education department. The proposal calls for award sizes ranging from $50 million to $100 million, depending on state population, with special

consideration given for states that serve large rural populations. Gross said those goals are in line with the final recommendations of the Governor’s Task Force on Transforming Education in Kentucky, which lists as its first priority expanding preschool opportunities in the state and improving the transition from preschool to kindergarten. “This is a good fit,” she said. In 2009, state lawmakers approved Senate Bill 1, which calls for the creation of more demanding state education standards that are aligned from preschool to college. Approximately 23,000 Kentucky children were enrolled in state preschool programs and an additional 17,000 in federal Head Start preschool programs in 2010, according to the 64page report issued in February. State preschool programs are open to 4-yearolds whose family income is no more than 150 percent of poverty and all 3- and 4year-old children with developmental delays and disabilities, regardless of income. The task force calls in the report for the state to include all 3- and 4-yearolds at 200 percent of the federal poverty threshold, which would add 30,000 children. It also calls for early childhood education standards to be aligned with the state’s K-12 standards, the state to fully fund all-day kindergarten and research into whether Kentucky should change its kindergarten cut-off birth date for 5-year-olds.

Former Florence Police officer Dan Ryan opened the All-American Athletic Training Center at 7944 Tanners Gate Lane in Florence. resistance bands that offer strength, cardiovascular and flexibility training all in one. Opening a gym is a natural step for Ryan. “I’ve been training people for the better part of 25 years,” Ryan said. During his time in the military, Ryan was a physical trainer, and that continued after his military career ended. “When I came out and started my law enforcement career, the departments were really pushing physical fitness,” Ryan said. Ryan worked for the Florence Police Department

until he retired in 2002. After some time off, Ryan worked for a number of police departments and retired again, this time from the Edgewood Police Department, May 31. Throughout his law enforcement career, Ryan was always involved with physical training. Ryan knew he wanted to be a professional trainer, and knew he had to make a move soon. So the day after he retired, he opened his gym. “People have really encouraged me to open something where I could

train lots of people,” Ryan said. At first, Ryan was mostly training high school athletes, but over time a more diverse crowd has come in, ranging from kids to senior citizens. “I never expected the variety of people who are coming in,” Ryan said. Ryan is also using his gym to help the family of a fallen police officer and soldier. For more information about All-American Athletic Training Center call 859393-0911.

Curley adjusting well with Freedom By James Weber jweber@nky.com

Chris Curley’s second year in professional baseball has been smooth in some ways, but rough in others. The former Beechwood

High School standout has been sleeping in his own bed while he plays for the Florence Freedom this year. In the first month of the season, he has become one of the top offensive players in the Frontier League.

Three Freedom players league all-stars Florence Freedom outfielder Cole Miles, infielder Chris Curley and catcher Justin Holloway have been selected as Frontier League All-Stars. They will be a part of the West squad for the All-Star Game at 7:05 p.m. Wednesday, July 13, at All Pro Freight Stadium in Avon, Ohio, home of the Lake Erie Crushers. Miles was named a starting outfielder for the West after hitting .341 during his first 39 games of the season, the fifthbest average in the Frontier League. He is also second in the league with 59 hits, second with 21 stolen bases and leads the league with six triples. The former 19th-round draft pick of the Atlanta Braves in 2005 has 20 multi-hit games in his first season with the Freedom. Curley, a Beechwood High School graduate from Edgewood, was selected as a reserve infielder. He leads the league with 36 runs scored, is tied for eighth with a .331 batting average, ranks tied for fourth with nine homers and is tied for second with 38 RBI. Curley is also a former Braves farmhand who spent the last two seasons in the organization before

coming to Florence in 2011. Holloway, in his second season with the Freedom, was named a reserve catcher. The Pasadena, Texas, native is hitting .297 with three homers and 14 RBI in 18 games this season. He has hit safely in 13 of those 18 contests and is batting .310 with two homers and eight RBI in his last eight games. Florence, 22-19 through July 4, is 7.5 games out of first place in the West Division. They start a three-game series at Rockford on Tuesday before coming home for a three-game series against Traverse City from Friday through Sunday to take them into the AllStar break. The Florence Freedom Professional Baseball team is a member of the independent Frontier League. Tickets for this coming weekend and any other home game can be purchased and printed in advance at www.florencefreedom.com or by calling the Freedom box office at (859) 594-HITS (4487). See more sports coverage at www.cincinnati.com/blogs/ presspreps.

In the field, it has been a different story, as Curley has been adjusting to playing extended time at second base for the first time in his baseball career. That has not been smooth, as Curley has 13 errors in his first 37 games, including two in a loss to Rockford June 30. Seven of the errors have come at shortstop. Curley has played third base most of his life. “I have to learn to move to my right instead of my left,” he said. “That’s a big difference. It’s just instinct. I just have to get used to it.” Curley was a standout bat and pitcher at Beechwood. He hit 11 homers his senior year in 2006, helping the Tigers finish as state runner-up. He went 9-0 on the mound that year including a complete-game shutout in the semifinals. He played college ball at Campbellsville, becoming one of the top players in the NAIA in three years. Curley was named the Mid-South Conference Player of the Year and a Second Team All-American as a junior, hitting .403 with 19 home runs. In his three-year career at CU, he broke records for home runs in a single season (19), career home runs (37), career hits (219) and career RBI (163). His career batting average is .386.

Florence Freedom shortstop Kevin Haas throws to first for the double play during a June 30 Frontier League professional baseball game. He played in the Atlanta Braves organization in 2010 but was released during spring training. With the Freedom, he is hitting .333 through June 30 with nine home runs and 36 RBI. He was third in the league in both homers and RBI. “I just try not to think too much, make solid contact,” he said. “The ball is falling in more for me.” “He has the ability to hit

any pitch,” first-year Freedom manager Fran Riordan said earlier this season. “He’s the kind of hitter who knows what his strengths are and really plays to his strengths in the batter’s box. He does a great job of staying inside the ball and I think he has one of the most polished two-strike approaches on our ball club. He’s been getting an opportunity to play here every day and we’re seeing his

offensive capability. We’re sure glad to have him.” Curley eventually wants to get back into the Major League system but is enjoying his time playing at home in front of family and friends. “I’ve had a lot of fun playing here,” he said. “I get to see family every night. You can’t beat that.” While the Freedom have struggled of late with a 1918 record through June 30, Curley is optimistic the team can make a run as they have just hit the one-third marker of the season. “We’ve hit a bit of a rough spot lately, but we’re turning it around,” he said. “We’ll be fine. We all get along well and have fun in the locker room.” See more sports coverage at www.cincinnati.com/blogs/pres spreps.

I want to thank the fire marshal and all the others involved for making it legal to buy and shoot fireworks just in time for the neighborhoods to start shooting these fireworks a week before, and I’m sure to be weeks after the 4th. It was bad enough when the Boone County Sheriff announced a couple of years ago that he

would not go out to fireworks calls, but now he can’t. There has to be a cutoff time for fireworks. The night of July 2 and July 3 I could hear them well after midnight. Isn’t that disturbing the peace at some point? If not I guess I can buy cases of firecrackers and shoot a brick every night until the next 4th of July, correct? James Addison Hebron

Pool restrictions lifted, efforts to contain shigella continue Many families have been visited by an unwelcome guest this spring and summer: the shigella b a c t e r i a . Between April 1 and June 28, more than 100 cases of shigella were reported in Northern Kentucky. Shigella is a bacteria that Dr. Lynne infects the bowSaddler els. It causes an Community illness called Recorder shigellosis, with y m p t o m s guest sincluding diarcolumnist rhea, fever, stomach cramps, nausea or vomiting. Shigella primarily infects young children, since it is spread through contact with the stool of an infected person. We’ve had to take many steps to contain the shigella outbreak, the most visible one being restricting children who are not toilet trained from public pools. We realize that many families were inconvenienced by this rule; however, it was one we felt was necessary. As we move to the peak of summer, it appears that our efforts to contain shigella have been working. Although cases continue to be reported, the bacteria is restricted to child care centers and has not infiltrated local pools. Thus, we eased the restrictions on diapers in pools as of June 30. Our work on this outbreak is not done yet, though. We are still seeing some children in child care centers becoming infected with the bacteria, and it can have serious complications, including high fevers and seizures. The illness can also spread to family members and others in the community if frequent and proper hand washing procedures are not followed.

We will continue to focus our disease prevention efforts on child care centers, as we have done since the shigella cases first began in April. The health department has supplied all licensed child care with educational information about the outbreak and steps they should take to prevent or stop the spread of these germs. We have emphasized hand washing, which is the most effective way to prevent transmission. Any child care center that has cases is visited by a team of health department staff. They are required to follow sanitization and cleaning guidelines and exclude children who are sick. Centers are also not permitted to use water tables or pools. While closing a child care center might seem like a solution, it’s typically not the case. Children from the closed center could end up in other centers, or gathered at homes, potentially exposing a greater number of children to the bacteria. Should cases continue in one particular child care, we will look at more restrictive measures. The health department and child care center staff cannot contain this outbreak on our own. We need help from parents. If your child is sick with diarrhea, please don’t send him/her to child care or to the pool. Practice good hand washing to keep shigella and other illnesses at bay. These steps will not only protect your child, but also his/her classmates. Shigella thrives in the summer months. We hope that our aggressive approach, initially targeting pools and child care centers, will ensure that more families can enjoy a swim or an afternoon of play without worry. Dr. Lynne Saddler is district director of health at the Northern Kentucky Health Department.

While some early communities such as Petersburg or Bullittburg have survived (perhaps with a name change), quite a few others have dwindled or disappeared entirely. “Lost River Towns of Boone County,” published late last year, explores the history of a number of these fascinating locations. The book, published by The History Press, features contributions from several authors and was edited by Bridget B. Striker. It is available at local book and media outlets and online through www.historypress.net.

Big Bone Island

Big Bone Island was a small natural deposit of sand and gravel just below the mouth of Big Bone Creek. The island was never inhabited. However, the flat, partially wooded terrain made it a popular camping and fishing spot

up through the 20th century. The island’s location, straddling the Boone and Gallatin county line, led to some goodnatured controHistoric versy about Boone which county County actually owned the island. By 1970, changing water levels and shifting deposits had reshaped the island, leaving it entirely within the borders of Gallatin County. This prompted Boone County Judge-executive Bruce Ferguson to launch an “invasion” to take back the island. In the summer of 1973, as part of the celebrations to commemorate the 175th anniversary of Boone County, Judge Ferguson led a two-pronged attack to reclaim the island. “The Boone Volunteer Defenders” stormed the beachhead and secured the provisions for the mission: the beer keg. Once in position, the invaders trained the cannon at the potential enemy forces: Gallatin County.

Judge Ferguson soon arrived, his father’s captured samurai sword lifted high, declaring victory. Celebrations were cut short when air support finally arrived and the pilot mistook the celebrants as enemy combatants. Observing strict radio silence, the pilot launched the prepared flour bombs at the unsuspecting revelers. Believing it to be an enemy counteroffensive, the artillerymen returned fire. Fortunately, there were no casualties from this incident of friendly fire. Years of river ice and rising water levels slowly eroded Big Bone Island. During the winter of 1977, the Ohio River was ice packed, and by spring, the island was completely gone. The Boone County Historic Preservation Review Board meets at 4 p.m. the second Thursday of every month. Meetings are open to the public.

Ky. looking at for-profit colleges As attorney general, it is my job to ensure that businesses operating in Kentucky are following our Consumer Protection laws and that taxpayer money is not being wasted. That’s why I launched an investigation last year into the questionable business practices of some of Kentucky’s for-profit colleges that receive a large part of their funding from federal and state student financial assistance programs. I am also leading a national bipartisan effort, which now includes 18 states, to examine potential abuses within the industry. Some in the for-profit industry have called my investigation an “assault.” This is not an assault; this is me doing my job. These businesses can afford lots of lawyers, but the consumers of Kentucky have one advocate and that’s the Office of the Attorney General. My staff and I will not back down. Quite frankly, the industry’s response to our investigation has been very disappointing. For-profit schools should acknowledge and work to correct the well-documented issues involving high student loan default rates, overaggressive recruiting practices, misleading advertising and high student withdrawal rates. Instead, some schools and their trade associations have opted to lob attacks. These baseless attacks will not

deter me or my office and they will not deter the attorneys general from across the country who have joined me in this investigation. Jack Conway According to Community the U.S. DepartRecorder ment of Educataxpayers guest tion, last year spent columnist $30 billion for loans and aid to students attending for-profit institutions. Nearly 90 percent of their revenue comes from federal taxpayer dollars. While only about 12 percent of the nation’s college students attend proprietary colleges, they account for nearly 25 percent of the student loans and nearly half of all student loan defaults for which taxpayers are then responsible. My office is investigating seven for-profit schools. We are concerned about schools with high student-loan default rates and are investigating advertising claims to prospective students regarding future employment prospects, the transferability of their credits to other schools and how much their degree will cost. Our investigation has revealed some disturbing trends.

• A degree from a for-profit school is very expensive, costing several times as much as a degree from a public institution. Despite these high costs, questions have been raised by students, employers and state regulators about the quality of the faculty and education at some of these schools. • For a variety of legitimate reasons, the credits earned at forprofit schools will rarely be accepted by another institution should a student wish to transfer. • A very high percentage of students at leading for-profit schools withdraw without ever obtaining a degree • Some for-profit schools employ aggressive recruitment tactics to convince students to enroll. As Kentucky’s chief consumer protection advocate, I am deeply troubled by our findings. The consumers of Kentucky have one voice – that of the attorney general. I have an obligation to investigate this issue and these schools for the good of the legitimate proprietary schools that are providing a quality education, for Kentucky taxpayers and for those, young and old, who are dreaming of a brighter future for themselves and their families. Jack Conway is attorney general of Kentucky.

Brew Haus supports community events By Patricia A. Scheyer Community Recorder Contributor

Hebron Brew Haus is well known in the area for great pizza, which is made fresh from the dough to the toppings. Located at 2030 Northside Drive, just off North Bend Road in Hebron, the restaurant/bar may not be easily visible, but is worth looking for. Open since April 2010, the establishment is owned by a mother/daughter team, Amy Arvin and Joyce Masten. “We love having our own business,” said Arvin. “We have a buffet from 11 a.m. ‘til 2 p.m. Monday through Friday with pasta, pizza, soup, salad and dessert, and our bar has 18 taps with beer mostly from local breweries. And we are not just pizza – we have

hoagies, fish and wings, too.” Specials are run almost everyday, such as 50 cent wings on Sunday, and these specials are listed on their website, www.hebronbrew haus.com. Karaoke is featured on Thursday and Friday, and live trivia is scheduled for Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. where people can win house cash. “We always try to support our community, too, by working with the local schools and helping with fundraisers,” said Arvin. “On July 8 we will have the No. 2 Miller Lite car here and people can win tickets to the Sprint Nascar Race. We will also be at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Festival, and we will be the pizza vendor at the Boone County Fair later this summer.”

The Yearlings organization had its roots in the Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park back in 1986. Women from the Spiral Stakes board were appointed to help with the extra events that were held in conjunction with the Stakes, such as the dog show and the beauty pageant. They did their job so well, that approximately two years later the group of women, who had dubbed their group The Yearlings to have a name connected with the horses, broke away from the Spiral Stakes and incorporated the group as a separate entity designed to raise money for the community. “We enrolled new members when we were selling pins to financial institutions as a fundraiser with the Spiral Stakes,” said Carole Ewald, a charter member of The Yearlings from Covington. “Patti McDermott was our first president, and she came from People’s Bank. We incorporated a few years later, but we still helped with the Spiral Stakes events for awhile.” The Yearlings are approximately 40 strong and very effective for that size of a group. The members are from all three counties in Northern Kentucky. Lisa Martin is the current president, and she is not surprised about the group’s efficacy. “Our motto is Charitable Minds, Community Hearts,” said Martin. “We are all volunteer, and although we have women of all ages, there is a strong sense of friendship here, as well as common purpose. We all volunteer to raise money, and help those who need help. We feel blessed, and we want to pass on those blessings. We want to give back to the community, and we feel good about that.” On July 23, at 11:30 am, The Yearlings will host their annual golf outing which, along with their fall gala, is a major fundraiser. “If anyone would like to attend the golf outing, they can call me at 513315-1662,” said Barbara Moran Johnson of Fort Wright, who has been a Yearling for 15 years and organizes the golf outing. “I joined The Yearlings initially to meet people, because I didn’t know many people here, but I stay because I love what we do. We touch a lot of people, and it is very rewarding.” The fall gala on Nov. 11 will be special this year because it is The Yearling’s 25th anniversary. “Our gala will be ‘25 Years on the Silver Screen’ and it will be held at the Triple Crown Country Club,” said Brenda Sparks, from Florence, who is in charge of publicity for The Yearlings and is the first-time winner of Yearling of the Year. “Everything will be in silver, black, and gold, and there will be a red carpet, just like for the Hollywood stars. We will have lots of food, and auctions on a grand scale. The Yearlings are a fabulous group and I have been a part of it since 1988.” In addition to the two large fundraisers, The Yearlings have a fashion show every February with Donna Salyers’ Fabulous-Furs, and a scrapbooking event called Crop for the Community as well as a gift wrap ses-

A scholarship for $2,500 goes to a non-traditional student at Gateway Community College, and two $500 scholarships go to seniors in area high schools who excel in community service. Another amount, approximately $12,000, is divided between two organizations that are selected by The Yearlings each year. This year the money will go to Wags and Whiskers for their spay and neuter program and Wood Hudson Cancer Research group. “I have been a Yearling for five years, and I joined because they are an exceptional and diverse group of women who raise money for scholarships and charities throughout Greater Cincinnati,” said Haley Taylor, from

Everyone here truly believes in the good they try to do every year, and I think it has lasted so long because we like each other, and we have fun together.” Rachel Hulette, from southern Campbell County, was invited to join The Yearlings six years ago by her neighbor, Jennifer Ossege, and they co-chaired the gala last year. “I love The Yearlings because we give back to the community,” said Hulette. “We focus on local charities, and we feel that we are really making a difference. We have a website, www.theyearlings.org, where people can visit to get more information about us. I really feel that The Yearlings try to improve the welfare of our community, and over the years have had a definite impact on our community.”

Just you and me and our furry baby makes three At bedtime one night recently, my husband Tom said, “Not tonight Sweetie, I have a headache.” And he wasn’t referring to what you might think; he was referring to our dog Nosey sleeping on the bed. Now, we discussed where pets should sleep a few columns back, but haven’t addressed what pet ownership can mean to fledgling romantic relationships. When I was single and lived in a condo, I had a white teddy bear hamster named Squeaker Snow. He was the perfect single-girl pet. To make a long story short, my co-workers and I began a running joke about things like the martinis that Squeak was going to have waiting for me when I got home from work, what Squeak and I were going to have for dinner or what Squeak and I were going to do that weekend.

It was all great, giggly fun. At the same time there was a man I fancied who Marsie Hall worked in Newbold another diviMarsie’s sion of the Menagerie company. W e seemed to have a mutual attraction, but he never asked me out. One day, we were having lunch together in the break room. “So, how long have you been married?” he asked, conversationally. I was surprised. “I’m not married,” I replied, “Where did you get that idea?” “Well, I always hear you talking about Squeak, so I just assumed,” he trailed off. You should have seen the look on his face when I

So, needless to say I know firsthand how pets can come between two consenting adults. Doris Marks Callis of Mount Lookout also does. “I was unmarried and looking for three years,” she says. “I dated tons, but could never find someone who would embrace my zoo of three dogs and two cats. I was not willing to settle for someone who merely tolerated them like the guy who

said, ‘Sorry Babe, I’m just not a pet lover.’ “My pets are like children to me,” she explains. “So, I came up with a simple hurdle, I would only get married if I met someone I would rather wake up next to than my dog, Nancy.” It took some time, then she met “The Guy,” Marc. He was a kindred soul who owned a dog named Elvis to whom he was very attached. Now she wakes up next to him and Nancy and they all slept together happily until Elvis ran away. Jenny Durbin of Silverton is still miffed over one of her experiences. “I was dating a doctor,” she says, “And it was going really well until my puppy licked his hand and he freaked! ‘Is there a place where I can wash up?’ he asked holding his hand like it was on fire.” “Yes, your house,” I said. “It’s really hard to

How ‘new’ are the new tires you just bought? The next time you buy new tires you need to do more than figure out which brand to buy, you need to make sure the tires you get are really new. That’s right, there’s a chance the tires you buy could have been sitting on a store shelf for years before being put on your vehicle. Kristin Hugentobler of Fairfield said she never gave it a second thought when she bought a set of tires for her SUV back in 2009. “They just put them on and we paid them. We got a good deal out of it and we assumed it was a good deal,” she said. So, Hugentobler said she was very surprised when she got her vehicle inspected recently. “He checked the tires and said the tires are dry rotted and to have them replaced before the fall. … He also showed me the manufacture date – they sat on the shelf for approximately two years before they put them on our vehicle,” she said.

Hugentobler went back to the store that sold her the tires. “We got Howard Ain t h e m inspected Hey and they said Howard! the tires were fine. I would hope they’d be fine. When there are only 26,000, 27,000 miles on a tire you would hope they were fine, that they would last longer.” Hugentobler said she’s not sure what to do. One shop says she needs new tires. The other shop says the tires are perfectly fine. All she wants is to be safe. So I checked her tires and found two were made in 2007, and the other two were made in 2008. You can determine the age of the tire by checking the tire identification number on the sidewall of the tire. It begins with the letters “DOT,” and the last four digits state the week and

then the year in which the tire was manufactured. Federal regulators say the effects of aging may not be visible on a tire, but the age does matter. Hugentobler said, “I was pretty upset that they did that. The put two-year-old tires on an SUV that could destroy it if the tire went out.” The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said tires tend to last about six years from the date of manufacture, so Hugentobler should have a few years left on her tires. NHTSA said tire degradation occurs over time, mostly from chemical reactions. Generally, it said, your tire tread will wear out before aging becomes a concern – unless they were old when they were first put on your vehicle. However, spare tires are prone to aging problems because they are not generally rotated onto your car. They stay unused until needed and, depending on how long that is, when you

do need them they may be hazardous – even if there is a lot of tread remaining. So, it’s not the tread you need to check on your spare tire, but the date it was manufactured because aging can impair the structural integrity of the tire.

believe his reaction considering when we met it was at a nursery and I had a 20pound bag of manure on my shoulder. Right next to my head!” she giggles. Well, if dog slobber, pee or poop were poison, Jenny and I agree, we both would have been dead long ago; so Doctor Man probably didn’t assume room temperature because of his “injury.” My friend, Mona Bronson-Fuqua of Westwood, is

one of the wisest people I know. She has been happily married for 13 years and her counsel is, “Make sure you are both on the same page about animals before you bring one home. Your pet, your relationships and ultimately your marriage will thank you!” For more pet care tips, visit www.marsiesmenagerie.com.

Grandkids ‘eyeing’ new potatoes in the garden When I was tilling the garden the other day, I accidentally tilled up some potatoes. They were tiny, of course, but darned cute and fit nicely around an eye of round roast beef that I made for dinner. I must have missed picking up some, though, because grandEva, Rita daughter, found two more Heikenfeld when she was Rita’s helping hoe the kitchen rows. She was excited to find potatoes so soon (it’s always a contest when the grandkids dig potatoes to see who can find them first, so Eva won by default this year). She insisted we fry them, unpeeled and sliced, alongside her morning eggs. That was fine with me as potatoes have lots of potassium and vitamin C.

The Northern Kentucky Honor Guard stands as Taps is played prior to the flag disposal on Flag Day.

THANKS TO NANCY BROTHERTON

Flags given traditional disposal On June 14, the Northern Kentucky Honor Guard sponsored by the American Legion Post 4 in Florence performed a flag disposal ceremony in observance of Flag Day. When a flag gets discolored or tattered, it should be retired and disposed of in a respectful manner, preferably burning, Legion members said. The temperature was a perfect 77 degrees when the Northern Kentucky Honor Guard met at the Club Moonlite campsite of Norbert Lankheit, an honor guard member. More than 1,500 flags were collected for disposal. To begin the ceremony,

Dave Jones Sr. performed a ceremony certifying the flags were unserviceable and ready for disposal. He then commanded the Northern Kentucky Honor Guard members to form a single line at attention. Members then fired their rifles in a three-volley gun salute and stood reverently for a few moments as Taps were played on the bugle. All in attendance stood for a moment of silence as a sign of respect. Jones then lit the flags, and as the fire burned brighter and higher, more flags were placed upon the flames for disposal. This process took approximately three hours and a sense of reverence was held throughout the process. Honor guard members present at the disposal service were Dave Jones Sr., Dave Jones Jr., Mike Moses Sr., Gary Caldwell, Paul Wells, Dick Gosney, Danny Lammers and Bill Krebs. Peggy Combs and Linda Lammers attended and served refreshments for the

The Northern Kentucky Honor Guard still serves even though most of its members are no longer active in the military. They provide military honors to fallen comrades, flag folding ceremonies and reverence to any patriotic event. The Northern Kentucky

Honor Guard is looking for volunteers. Volunteers can be civilian and there is no requirement to be a Legion member. Free uniforms, training, and transportation from the post to the funeral site are provided. For more information, call Dave Jones Sr. at 859341-7257.

Lots of interest in preserving beets There must be a bountiful harvest of beets in the area. We’ve had several calls recently about how to cook and preserve fresh beets. Beets in our area can be harvested from June to November. They can often be purchased at local farmers markets. If you’ve never had anything but canned beets you may want to try cooking some fresh ones. You’ll be surprised at the flavor and texture differences. When selecting beets, choose those that are round, firm, rich in color, and smooth over most of the surface. Wilted or decayed tops may indicate a lack of freshness. However, realize beet greens wilt rather quickly after harvest. Fresh beets sold at farmers markets often have soil clinging to them. Both the roots of the beets and the beet greens can be eaten. The roots of the beets can be stored in plastic bags for one to two weeks in the refrigerator. You can also refrigerate the greens in plastic bags and use them within two to three days. Cooked beets may be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. Rinse beets under running water, removing any visible traces of dirt. To keep the juices of the beets locked inside while cooking, leave the skin, tail, and an inch of the stem attached. The skin will be easier to remove after the beet is cooked. Beet juices will stain countertops and clothing. Use care when handling raw or cooked beets. Beets may be baked, steamed, boiled or roasted. They can even be eaten raw. Beets may be canned plain or pickled, or frozen for future use. When canned plain they must be processed in a pressure canner because they are a lowacid food. Pickled beets may be processed in a waterbath canner. All beets are a good source of fiber, folate, calcium, and vitamin C, and

they are low in fat. One cup of cooked beets or one medium raw beet contains 50 Diane about calories and Mason 2 grams Extension fiber. Following Notes is a simple salad you might want to try this summer.

Summer Beet Salad

6 medium-size beets 1 red onion, sliced 1 ⁄2 cucumber, sliced 5 tablespoons low-fat plain yogurt 2 tablespoons reducedfat mayonnaise 1 tablespoon balsamic or red wine vinegar 1 ⁄2 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard 1 ⁄2 teaspoon prepared horseradish 2 tablespoons dried dill weed or 3 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped 1 ⁄4 teaspoon salt (optional) 1 ⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper Scrub beets. Cut off tops leaving about 1 inch of the stems. Boil in water for about 45 minutes or until tender. Drain hot water from pot and refill with cold water. When beets are cool enough to handle, peel, slice thinly and place in a salad bowl. Add onion and cucumber. In a separate bowl, combine yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, horseradish, dill, salt, and pepper. Pour over vegetables and toss to combine. Refrigerate two hours or overnight. Serve chilled. Yield: six (1-cup) servings. Approximate nutrition per 1-cup serving: 90 calories, 3.5 g fat, 3 g protein, 1 g fiber, 13 g carbohydrate, 250 mg sodium, 10 mg cholesterol.

Lemonade stands to help Salvation Army The Salvation Army launched a new fundraising initiative, LemonAID.

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Sheriff. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America, the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards issued by the Comptroller General of the United States, and the Audit Guide for County Fee Officials issued by the Auditor of Public Accounts, Commonwealth of Kentucky. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. an audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. As described in Note 1, the Sheriff prepares the financial statements on a regulatory basis of accounting that demonstrates compliance with the laws of Kentucky, which is a comprehensive basis of accounting other than accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. In our opinion, the accompanying financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the revenues and expenditures of the Sheriff and the revenues, expenditures, and fund balances of the Sheriff’s operating fund and county fund with the State Treasurer for the year ended December 31, 2009, in conformity with the regulatory basis of accounting described in Note 1.

Grub damage showing up in Northern Kentucky Question: I am seeing some thinning and yellowing in my lawn. I also found a few grubs in the soil. Should I go ahead and treat the lawn now? What is the best way to stop grubs? Answer: White grub damage shows up the most after extended dry weather, but some local lawns are already being damaged. Grubs are the most destructive insect pests of turfgrasses in Kentucky. Turf is damaged when the grubs (the larval or immature stages of certain beetles) chew off the grass roots just below the soil surface. The root injury reduces the turf’s ability to take up

water and nutrients and withstand the stress of hot, dry weather conditions. Several Mike Klahr species of Community white grubs Recorder can cause damage, columnist this but the two that are most common in Kentucky are the larvae of masked chafers and Japanese beetles. Other species occasionally infesting turfgrass in Kentucky are the larvae of green June beetles, May beetles (“June Bugs”), and the black turfgrass ataenius.

All of these grubs have stout, grayish-to-white bodies with brown heads. Depending upon the species, the mature grub ranges in size from 3⁄8 to 2 inches long. Most species are curled into a C-shape when at rest, although green June beetle grubs have the curious habit of crawling on their backs. Sod that is heavily grubdamaged is not well anchored, and you can pull it loose from the soil as if lifting a carpet. If the brown patches do not pull up easily, the problem is usually related to other causes, e.g., a localized dry spot, dog urine damage, fertilizer burn, sub-

If the turf does pull up easily, inspect the top 1 to 2 inches of soil for the white, C-shaped larvae. Sampling of potential infestation sites and early recognition of a grub problem can prevent turf loss and costly renovation. If your turf had a serious grub problem last year, the adult beetles are likely to

return and re-infest the same areas. Sites with a large number of adult beetles in June and July are more likely to have grubs in late summer. Another indication that white grubs may be present is moles, skunks, raccoons, or flocks of blackbirds finding the turf attractive. Now is a good time to apply certain chemicals to

stop grubs. Products that will be effective if applied now include Imidacloprid (sold as Merit or Bayer Advanced Lawn Seasonlong Grub Control), and Halofenozide (Mach 2 or Scott’s Grub Ex). Grub-control products containing Trichlorfon, such as Dylox and Bayer Advanced 24-hour Grub Control, should not be applied until August or September. Products containing “Milky Spore” (Bacillus) powder have shown poor performance in Kentucky field trials. Mike Klahr is the Boone County Extension Agent for Horticulture.
